All courses are offered on both full-time and part-time basis. Classes are conducted during evenings and occasional weekends.
There are no prerequisites of all compulsory or elective courses. Not all the courses listed will necessarily be offered every year. While we try to ensure as broad a course offering to students as possible, courses offered each year do vary based on availability of teaching staff, departmental resources and student demand. In exceptional instances, it may be necessary to cancel a course at short notice because of insufficient student enrolment or other resource issues.
